Comments from customers who bought this item:
The Akai EWI5000 is the most expressive and versatile wind instrument available to today's musicians, combining innovative instrument design, wireless connectivity and a sound library by SONiVOX. Akai Professional have created the EWI5000 to push the boundaries of wind instrument performance, built for the contemporary player.
Freedom to Perform
You can perform freely with the EWI5000 thanks to 2.4GHz low-latency wireless connectivity. It supports stereo wireless audio and includes a receiver for instant mobility on the stage or in the studio. EWI5000 also supports wired audio and MIDI connections for integrating with additional external performance and production hardware. Plus, its powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, so you can take EWI5000 with you and play it anywhere.
The EWI5000 features an ultra-responsive mouth piece with an air-pressure level sensor and bite sensor for precisely controlling volume and pitch dynamics. You can adjust instrument or effect parameters on the fly; tweak Filter, Reverb, Chorus, LFO, Breath Amount, Bite Amount, Semitone Tuning, and Fine Tuning for a sound that's as expressive as your playing with the eight dedicated precision dials.
The EWI5000 interface supports both brass and woodwind musicians alike, and can be switched to flute oboe and saxophone fingering modes, as well as featuring an EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) Mode. Whether you're a classically trained flutist looking for a modern instrument, or a seasoned EWI player looking for finger-position flexibility, EWI5000 has you covered.
USB-MIDI connectivity and a 5-pin MIDI output enable you to expand your sonic palette by controlling software synths, virtual samplers, or traditional MIDI modules. EWI5000 comes with a built-in 1/4-inch output for connecting it directly to PA systems and a 1/8-inch headphone output for practicing privately. A USB cable and wall adapter are included to recharge battery power via USB or wall power.
Any Sound for Any Performance
With 3GB of built-in high-quality sounds designed by SONiVOX, the possibilities are endless with the EWI5000. Created by the leader in premium virtual instruments and software synthesis technologies, these instruments span across just about every music genre and put traditional orchestral sounds (e.g. horn, brass, and woodwind) and non-traditional sounds (e.g. progressive synths, basses, and leads) at your fingertips.
EWI5000 Sound Editor
Expand your creative capabilities with the EWI5000 Sound Editor software. This custom software editor is a powerful platform for manipulating EWI5000's sound library on your Mac or PC. Connect EWI5000 to your computer via USB; call up any instrument from the library; and use the filter, two LFOs, pan knob, tune control, and multiple envelopes to tweak it into something entirely new. Then, store your edits directly on your EWI5000 for a customized instrument library that's ready to perform whenever you are.
